Support ballet hartford
Ballet Hartford along with its affiliate school, School of Ballet Hartford, exists as a nonprofit. We rely on the generosity of friends like you to produce programs that incorporate historical, classical ballet and new, artistically diverse choreographic works. Your support helps us provide art for the city with performances that uphold tradition and celebrate innovation.
Gifts to our Annual Fund impact Ballet Hartford wherever the need is greatest at the time of your donation. From the rental cost of our historic studios at The 224 Ecospace, to costuming our dancers, to employing a stage manager and lighting designer, our needs change throughout the season. Every gift to the Annual Fund makes a difference to Ballet Hartford every day.
For those who wish to make an impact in a particular area, we offer several opportunities to do so.
School of Ballet Hartford Financial Aid & Scholarship Fund
School of Ballet Hartford is committed to offering the highest caliber training in classical ballet and other genres of dance to any student who wishes to learn, regardless of the family’s economic background or financial position. Gifts to the SBH Financial Aid & Scholarship Fund open access to the enriching benefits of dance education to those who might otherwise not be able to afford it.
Raising the Barre Fund
Ballet Hartford is fortunate to be invited to perform throughout the US and abroad. These tours are important in establishing recognition of Ballet Hartford as a company of quality. Gifts to the Raising the Barre Fund enable the Company to participate in these types of events.
Does a certain dancer’s artistry speak to you? Do you want to help his or her career grow and flourish? By sponsoring a dancer, you will directly support your artist’s salary, tours, and performances throughout the year.
